The Kew Community Festival - KEWfest

is a well-supported community festival capturing the diversity of Kew.

It has a rich history since 1974 of delivering quality events in Kew and involves activities and events presented over several weeks in March attracting approximately 10,000 people.

The Kew Festival engages the community in the KEWmunity Day, the Evening Concert and other free entertainment and promotes activities provided by community groups.

The Kew Community Festival is run at a variety of sites throughout Kew and Kew East, in the City of Boroondara, which is part of Greater Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

Welcome to KEWfest 18!

KEWfest is proud to celebrate the region through a two-and-a-half-week program of moving events. We engage many community groups in the area and bring residents together. We offer a program with something for everyone.
So – my thanks to the team members for their unstinting organisational contributions, to the City of Boroondara and all other sponsors – thank you. To the organisers who bring to life each event – thank you.
And last but not least, thanks to you, our festival goers. Your continued support gives life and meaning to the word “community”.
Thanks to the KEWfest 18 team including:
Alice Hobden, Alison Vickers, Angela Padula, David Benwell, Debbie McColl-Davis, Ian Lowe, Lisa Sylvan, Maree Connell, Martin Foot, Noel Kelly, Paola De Thomasis, Ruth Silva, Tracey Ellett, Yasmin Khamis, Cristina Chiorean, and Festival Director Kirsty Breen.
